    This is a pretty broad subject line - I welcome anyone to add to this thread. I came across this interpretive sign today, explaining how the meadow between Lost Lagoon and English Bay is being allowed to develop into a more natural wetland.

    Here is the Silverweed, Potentilla anserina. Wikipedia (Argentina anserina - Wikipedia) says Argentina anserina is a synonym, yet the entry is curiously filed under Argentina - that's not usually how they do things. The few folklore bits on that page are interesting.
    Fortunately, this stuff is attractive - there is a lot of it here.

    I think these are plants are both Geum macrophyllum:
